Setup help needed

  1. Hi everyone,
    I`m coming back to trading after a couple of years doing some other stuff and I need help with my trading setup.

    In my last stint, I used IB/Sierracharts combination, which was the "best buy" option at the time for both the charting and commissions.

    This time I`m switching to Velocity as my broker which was an obvious choice because of the margins, but the rest is still a mystery to me.

    I plan on trading index futures and currencies with a starting account of 25k, more or less.

    What are your thoughts on how the setup should be done? Is X-trader any good? Is the IQ feed reliable?

    Please post your ideas and past experiences.
